Hello All - if you guys are like me, and hate to see the globs of grass and mud build up on the lower rocker panels all the way aft where its very visible, then you might want to pick up a set of these I Pace mud guards.
The front guards (T4K1103) retail for $140, I found a new set on Ebay for $125 delivered. They also make a rear set (T4K1104) which I found are not really needed.

When I researched the factory mud guards, one owner came back and told me the dealer wanted $700 to have them installed and was told it was a major job, regardless, I went ahead and ordered them to install myself.
As expected, you don’t need a degree in engineering or have to go to Jag school to install them yourself. There are very good instruction on the link I provided below.

JAGUAR Accessory Fitting Instructions





As the images show, there’s not a whole lot to them, they are somewhat short which prevents them from catching on speed bumps, yet stick down low enough to prevent the rocker panel from getting covered should you hit a construction zone.








Installation - The guard uses two screws at the lower end on the composite inner fender, plus it has a stud built into the guard which provides a rigid mount on the lower fender.

The first thing to do is remove the two screws from the lower inner fender. Next, hold the guard in place so you can locate where the hole needs to be drilled.
If you have air-ride you can just pump the bags up to have sufficient room to drill the hole under the fender. If you don’t, then just drive up on a few boards to lift the car slightly.





After you get it marked - carefully slide the composite inner fender over and lift it so the lower end is open to where you can get your hands in the corner to install the the nut which secures the guard.

After carefully marking the lower fender, drill the hole. Unlike the instructions there is nothing at all in there you can damage. Next, install the guard in place and reach in the fender to start the nut. This is not easy, so be patient. Once you get it started, use a small 10 mm socket to tighten it in place. For security, I added some blue locktite to the threads.



Regretfully, if you use the steel backing plate provided, the factory screws are too short, so I left out the backing plate because the support at the bottom of the fender is bullet-proof and needs no reinforcement. If you want to use the backer you’ll need to get some longer hardware.



To complete the job install the original two screws through the guard and into the two clips on the inner fender. and you’re done. The guard is very firmly mounted and because of its small size the three attaching points will securely hold the guard in place. If you happen to notice my painted calipers, I put up a story on this forum.

Enjoy - Mike

It's highly unlikely there is any record-able loss from these flaps since they are very small and located in the low pressure area behind the tires. I did not install the rear flaps since I was mainly concerned with the tires kicking up rocks striking the rear fender panel. I noticed Jag did put some clear tape on the rear section.
